    Dont know about other zero drinks, just don't do what I did...I thought it would be smart to have a gin and slimline tonic when in ketosis... it made my hands shake, my head go light and I felt really really woozy and light headed - that was on day 4 and before I started I used to have a G & T and at least half a bottle of wine a day!!!

    Oh well.....we all learn from our mistakes!:cool:

    I am finding the not eating thing really easy, although some habits are hard, like I went to the gym this morning for the first time in a year, and usually I would eat a banana in the car going home - so I just drank another (groan) bottle of water instead... with me the hard thing is not drinking alcohol, esp as my job involves loads of socialising - but I am giving everyone "boozy" nights IOUs for when I finish!

    What is really helping is the girl and guy I share an office with are really supportive, so they are not eating at their desks etc...and I am not cooking at home so that is helping.

    How 'bout you - any tactics you wanna share ;)

    not really.... just drinking as much water as poss.... ive found the more i drink the easier it comes off....i think lol. are you fully in ketosis then? i think i am, im not hungry etc and i have bad breath - my bf is really grateful hehe! all my family are having a take away 2nite which isnt going to help a great deal, but ill stick to my soup!!
    went out lastnite, got a few funny looks from people as they saw me with water in my hand, but think itll b worth it in the long run!
    how much have u got to lose?

    You can have some Coke Zero as there is no citric acid, so you should be fine. Other diet drinks tend to contain citric acid, and even a tiny amount could knock you out of ketosis. We're all different though, I found I could also drink Sprite Zero too!

    thanks for that
    i bought a bottle of fanta an sprite zero today but then just realised when i got home that i might not be able to have them because of the citric acid....
    might give it a go, the sprite anyway, and see how that goes

    sam:confused:

    Yes, you could have a little bit and see - I found that I could drink a glass of that a day without a problem. But other things would knock me straight out!

    Yeah, I am in ketosis - I have those stick things to test your levels - I find that handy because you know you need to drink more if it is too dark.

    The breath is horrible thou - mine is refusing to kiss me unless I clean my teeth each time!!!!

    I am hiding in my office each day at dinner time - luckily it is only about 10 mins from the house and cos I am self employed I dont mind being here!

    I want to loose 70lbs and get back to a size 8 (I am only 5ft 2) being a 14/16 doesnt suit me!!!

    What about you?

    The 660mls limit applies to the zero-calorie waters/coke zero etc.

    The sparkling water is just water so that is as much as you like.

    The CD water flavourings are 1 tspn max per day - supposed to be in 1L of water but I put 1 tspn in a 2L bottle as I find it too strong.

    I've got a feeling that Tescos HL Apple Squash is also free of citric acid...
